Houston Texans: Best and Worst-Case Scenarios for 2012

Matt Miller@nfldraftscoutFeatured Columnist IVMarch 13, 2017

Had it not been for injuries, many believe the Houston Texans had a legitimate shot at a Super Bowl berth in 2011. How will this team look with a healthy squad in 2012?

Pretty good.

The Texans get back Andre Johnson at full strength, and the draft brought a slew of talent on both sides of the ball. With a weak AFC South in front of them, the path is paved for Houston to make a return to the playoffs this offseason if the offensive line can hold up after losing Eric Winston and Mike Brisiel.

The defense is a shoe-in. J.J. Watt, Brian Cushing and Johnathan Joseph all lead a super-talented group that excelled under the watch of Wade Phillips last year. In Year 2, look for the Texans defense to take off.

How good can this team be, and is this their best chance for a Super Bowl? Find out as our panel of experts—Josh Zerkle, Dan Levy, Aaron Nagler and myself—break down the best and worst from Houston this season.
